O Prince of Peace, who man wast born

O Prince of Peace, who man wast born

Tune: SONG 5
Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 O Prince of Peace, who man wast born
That Thou might’st die to succor us,
My foolish tears do not Thou scorn,
But be my comfort, Christ Jesus.

2 Forgive my fears, my wretched moan;
For me it was Thou wroughtest thus;
Thou madest God and man at one;
So be my comfort, Christ Jesus.

3 For all Thou would’st make friend of foe,
Yet will my sin torment me thus;
My heavy guilt hath laid me low;
But be my comfort, Christ Jesus.

4 Give courage now to meet my strife;
Let me not lie in languor thus;
Raise me again to better life;
And be my comfort, Christ Jesus.

5 And when to die it is my day,
Thou, on the cross that died’st for us,
Leave me not then in that hard fray,
But be my comfort, Christ Jesus.
